Well, let’s give it a whirl and see what happens.

I’ll let everyone know when the change has been made.

Odd recommendation.  I've never been on a list with this behavior.  (Or more precisely, not since the 90s when bandwidth mattered and everyone was trying to conserve it and reduce "fluff.) Since I'm on two other busy Mailman lists that have the reply-to-list behavior, I can say I've seen it work fine.

And just now, I almost hit send before changing who I'm replying to.  I'd appreciate the change.

I’m not aware of any recent changes to the list config, but I’ll check.

The current “reply-to” behavior is the one generally recommended by the Mailman docs, which warn of weird email client behavior if you mess around with it.  I’m not beyond messing around with it, just don’t want to make things worse.

CAUTION: This email originated from outside of the CDK organization. Exercise caution when clicking links or opening attachments, especially from unknown senders.
If I do a reply on this list, it always puts the sender as the recipient, not the list.  This is remarkably stupid.  If I do a reply-all then it puts the list on CC and the sender in TO.

Sounds to me like 'from_is_list' now == 'munged', and this is how Outlook
behaves in this situation.
